Monstera deliciosa, popularly known as the Swiss Cheese Plant, is a striking tropical houseplant known for its large, glossy, heart-shaped leaves with unique perforations or holes, giving it a 'Swiss cheese' appearance. It is a great option for adding a lush, jungle-like feel to a room.
Monstera deliciosa thrives in bright, indirect light and prefers high humidity, well-drained soil and a consistent watering routine, allowing the soil to slightly dry between waterings. It's also a climber in its natural habitat, so providing it with a moss pole or similar support can encourage its growth. It's a fast-growing plant that can reach up to 2-3 metres indoors.
Like many houseplants, Monstera deliciosa can help improve indoor air quality. It can absorb toxins from the air, including formaldehyde, and release oxygen, contributing to a healthier living environment.
Please be aware that the plant is toxic if ingested, so keep it out of reach of pets and children.
